Forum: etree Subject: Re: FTP read-access is going away

I miss FTP for uploading and file maintenance! I love DownThemAll for downloading, it's smooth sailing with the regular expressions. . .
/(.mp3)$/ gets any file with an extension of .mp3
/(vbr.mp3)$/ gets only files with "vbr.mp3"
/(.(shn|flac|txt|md5|ffp))$/ is my standard lossless audio download string

But I notice that I can access FTP for the initial upload of Live Music Archive items, but once the files are checked in, the FTP is gone, and only the http interface remains. I think when the http interface is more suited to neatly sorting and selecting multiple files then it will be the "smooth sailing" experience, and I look forward to that.

In the meantime, I will upload very carefully before I check my files in, since that will be the only time I can use FTP.

Archive.org is still one of my favorite websites, and it keeps getting better. These little growing pains are a natural side-effect, I think.
